I once knew a small town police chief in Michigan.
He told me he quit because he spent 10% of his time on

Since the introduction of the Federal legislation, it has had unintended consequesnces. Since off-duty personnel cannot legally carry on school premises any longer, those parents who are LEO’s cannot legally bring their weapon to school events where there is a potential for trouble.
My wife was a teacher and I would stop by her class sometimes on the way to work. The fact that her students knew her husband was a 6'6 SWAT officer provided “deterrence” to anyone who may have harbored her ill-will. Not to mention the look on some of the guys faces in her class....priceless.
